The only negative I can see is that you missed the Ala-Ole Miss Thrashing
Well done :)
Congrats to da man !!!
Congrats man, I'm hoping to check this ride off my list in 2018.
Job well done - I'm glad you made it through safely. This is certainly something to be proud of.
congrats, nice effort. Well done
very impressive sir, nice FJR!
Excellent! Can’t wait to read the full report.
Recover quickly, then get your documents in order and submit soon to the IBA electronically.
Then, the ride report.
Doing both now.
Good job bud! Enjoyed the read.
Fireman - great riding accomplishment! Well done sir!
What an incredible story!
As fun as that will be, I will have to pass. I made a promise to my family and myself that I wouldn't do another IBA ride(minus an in state SS1k).
I obsessed over every detail of the ride for months leading up to the ride. Now that I have completed it, I haven't even thought about another one.
I am still working on the ride report. Life has gotten in the way...
Unless and until you've done more than a handful of these types of rides, it *is* easy to overplan.
Nothing inherently wrong with "plan the Ride, then Ride the Plan" - until the ride goes off the rails. At that point, being able to improvise, because you have a good understanding of the task, usually will help turn the ride into a successful one.
I agree - I briefly starting planning a 300CCC after completing my 100CCC; but aborted in favor of a 48 plus 10 to ride different roads experiencing parts of the country of have not traveled. While a coast-to-coast ride is easy to route - the challenge is the mitigation strategy for fatigue and contingencies. I respect @fireman1028 commitment made to family. I know my solo LD rides creates stress and worry for my family while on the road where they devote time checking my progress and are "on-call" for assistance if needed.
I deleted my post about 4 of us doing the 200 CCCCC, as I agree with @kwthom and @Scott Parish , and do not want to take away from the great success that @fireman1028 achieved in doing his 100 CCC.
I too respect @fireman1028 's commitment to his family.....which is why I married a lady that also rides her own motorcycles, and we have no children.
I'm a month late reading this but Congratulations on an impressive ride.
At the end of this last October I did my first BBG (1,500 miles in 24 hrs) heading east from Phoenix into Texas collecting four Tour of Honor under my way. There was a big chunk of I10 on this route and I had a first taste of riding a small portion of a 100CC - meaning riding the same Interstate twice!
I have been delaying a 50CC in favor of other rides. Living in AZ makes a 50CC start easier (compared to other central states) and a 100CC very natural since eventually you need to come back home or do some other type of riding on my way back (read National Parks, Tour of Honor, etc...).
Not having a CC currently on my bike (Kawasaki Concours 14) made the super slab not very comfortable. Only two rides I have done with a riding buddy (two bikes) and it seams enjoyable to have someone to talk along if you have similar riding styles (with all the drawback this implies).
Congrats again for this successful and amazing ride, looking forward to read the ride report
